I'd like to use {action.subscribeUrl} so email recipients can view and subscribe to public mailing lists. However, it does not show public Smart group mailing lists.

Is there a way to show Smart group public mailing lists using {action.subscribeUrl}?

Using CiviCRM 5.3.1 with WordPress.

  • Can you clarify in your question what the point of Public lists is if people can't sign up to them? – petednz - fuzion Nov 25 '18 at 18:40
  • I'd like people to able to sign up for the Public mailing lists and the smart group public mailing lists. – jgeurts Nov 30 '18 at 1:31
  • The other non-mailing public lists are used, for example, for our public member directory. We don't want non-members to be able to add themselves to that group. – jgeurts Nov 30 '18 at 1:32
  • i don't think you should need to make a Group 'public' in order to make a listing of those contacts public, you should be able to do the latter via your profile settings – petednz - fuzion Nov 30 '18 at 20:30
  • Group Visibility Select 'User and User Admin Only' if joining this group is controlled by authorized CiviCRM users only. If you want to allow contacts to join and remove themselves from this group via the Registration and Account Profile forms, select 'Public Pages'. – petednz - fuzion Nov 30 '18 at 20:30

Your email could link back with checksum to a Profile that has 'Groups' field on it which should therefore show only the Public Mailing Lists (iirc)

  • I tried that, but the Groups field includes all of our public lists - not just the public mailing lists. We don't want people to be able to add themselves to the non-mailing lists. – jgeurts Jul 27 '18 at 22:07
  • Although we might be able to create a custom field, use that in the checksum, and include the custom field in the Smart mailing group...that might work! – jgeurts Jul 27 '18 at 22:36
  • Did you check it as anonymous - were you maybe see all groups because you are Admin? – petednz - fuzion Jul 28 '18 at 0:34
  • I tried using it as anonymous but was still able to see all groups. – jgeurts Jul 31 '18 at 23:38
